Re: Problems using mixed types of home automation hardware

I'll probably just virtualise it, install the latest version than migrate everything into the new one.

Failing that, your welcome to help :-)

Re: Problems using mixed types of home automation hardware

So which plugin did you modify? Was it one under our source control? If so, I just released 048, but I would like to put the delay you tested in the current plugin so your don't have to worry about downloading new versions and have the issue come back and so other people won't have the issue either...

Re: OSA on a cheap windows tablet possible ?

I didn't know SSD's used to have a bad reputation for failing. My OSA server and a PC I use for media in my living room (Kodi) are both using Sandisk SSD's and are still flawless after at least 3 years. I do back them up occasionally though just in case. I will run diagnosis on the OSA drive to see ...

Re: OSA on a cheap windows tablet possible ?

Wow, they are some small PC's. Not sure how they would handle the heat rendering video etc, but that's off topic !!

The price will determine how well they sell.

Re: OSA on a cheap windows tablet possible ?

I Vaughn, I wouldn't worry about it. I know there are other PC's that will go super low with their power consumption when they are not busy, however I was just wondering if a cheap alternative might be possible. It was a big ask, and I suspected the answer might be no. I don't expect anyone to put i...

OSA on a cheap windows tablet possible ?

Hi. I've been looking around on the web and come across really cheap tablets, like the Linx 7 which claims it runs full windows 8/10 and apps. It only has 1GB ram, and an SSD drive. Does anyone know if the full installation of OSA would run ok on this? I'm looking for an alternative very low power P...

Re: Problems using mixed types of home automation hardware

Sorry guys, I've probably chose the wrong words to describe the issue (although solved, I imagine it has come up with other hardware). There is no problem with OSA or most folks plugins. Let me set the scenario again. An x10 PIR is triggered. It sends its RF code 5 times rather than once to be sure ...

Re: Question about MySQL and script.

Hi Stefan. I've attached the source for my latest version of the plugin. I agree with Vaughn though. You might want to write a standalone plugin in your favourite programming language and get this working in that first. My plugin waits for inbound serial data at 9600 8 N 1. When data comes in, it ex...

Problems using mixed types of home automation hardware

Whilst developing my own Home Automation hardware, I came across a problem. All my home made hardware works wireless on 434Mhz (310Mhz USA). However, so do my X10 PIR's When the X10 devices send a code, they repeat it 5 times. OSA normally responds the first of 5 codes and sends its response on anot...

Re: Question about MySQL and script.

Hi again Stefan. My plugin 'Thorian' does exactly this. Do you want a copy of it to play around with? You will need Visual Studio. I was inspired by the CM17 plugin (although this doesn't do conventional serial comms, it was my way in since I'd not touched visual basic for about 15 years!) You can s...
